Resistance problem getting started


(Heidi Broker) #1

Hello all,

As I’m quite new to Zwift I hope I’m posting in the right category. I’m using an Elite Direto smart trainer. When I ride in workout mode my resistance is set in ERG mode, so that works as I would expect. ERG overrides the terrain. The Companion app works correctly. When I’m riding in a free mode however, I have to change resistance by changing gear. In other words, I don’t notice any connection between the terrain and my bike. I can ride a 10%climb with 120 rpm if I would like to. I would expect that not to be possible… to really feel like I’m climbing. Is there something I’m doing wrong?
